Try to Connect with Nature (even if it means just opening a window and looking up at the sky)

by Patricia Giniger Snyder

There's no hiding that sheltering-at-home is a jolt to our communal psyche. But I'm hopeful that we (the collective we) are finding ways to enjoy moments (perhaps an hour, or even better, many hours) of being with ourselves.

Here in America and many places across the globe, spring has sprung, reminding us that even in the midst of a pandemic, Nature has her own way of doing things -- creating beauty in the midst of the unthinkable.

So my bit of advice on this Tuesday (April 7th) is to take that moment to stop and smell the proverbial roses, or the real ones, if you can! And find ways to laugh, keeping fear and worry at bay.

Speaking of the bay, here we are at high tide today in on Cape Cod in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. Nature changes here and everywhere by the minute. Now we actually have time to sit "on the dock of the bay, watching the tide roll away." Remember to take the time and take yourself to your own dock of the bay.
